Hi Jen, Liz and Alicia.

hello hello everyone! so excited for this panel! thank you!


Hello all thanks for joining!

Hi Alicia, I love what Arquitina is doing will the cohort expand to the west coast?

The percentage of women and men graduating from architecture school is 50/50. The problem is in the workforce/office… I was in the middle of writing but Jen covered it. Thanks, Jen.

I’m curious if the guests think that one barrier to more women, particularly women of color, in the field is the education requirements. I believe there is some discussion in the field about increasing pathways to the field/licensure through apprentice programs that used to be more common.
